OOh, boy, I feel a devils advocate coming on…
There are few things that make my head spin on it’s axis as much as coming face to face with a bold-faced liar. On the other hand, tattle-tellers also pretty much send me over the edge.
I often come face to face with this problem when I have to explain to my kids when fudging the truth is ok and when it isn’t. And then, of course, there is the sin of omission…which is sometimes the blessing of omission.
Do you have a headache yet?
Deciding when to tell the truth is hard enough for an adult, but how do you pass this information on to young children?
